Sprint Refreshes the LG Rumor Reflex Messaging Phone
Sprint recently added the LG Rumor Reflex S to its lineup of feature phones. The Rumor Reflex S is a slight update to last year's sideways slider that also includes a touch screen. It features a 3.0-inch WQVGA display, QWERTY keyboard, 2-megapixel camera with camcorder, GPS, and microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB of memory. The Rumor Reflex S is also ecologically friendly, and uses recycled materials in the redesigned outer shell. The device includes an energy efficient charger, and is free of harmful materials. It is available from Sprint's web site for $29.99 with a new two-year contract.

In two weeks, the LG G8 ThinQ will be offered by all major US carriers, with several offering major discounts at launch. This flagship phone from LG has a unique 3D depth camera on the front, supporting mid-air gestures, hand vein scanning, and 3D face scanning.
LG's V50 ThinQ is the first 5G phone for Sprint, and the first phone in the US to use 5G on low-frequency bands that provide broad coverage. LG took the V40 and somehow added both 5G and a larger battery, without making it any bigger.

My only thought is that this will be aimed at tweens and young teens as a first phone. Since it isn't a smartphone, there isn't quite as many ways for them to get into trouble with it.
Not everyone wants or needs a smartphone.
